Was kind of skeptical buying this nail gun since it was refurbished. But I couldn't be happier. For the money I wish I would have bought 2!

did not include 2in brads
Haven't had a chance to use it, but right off I noticed that did not come with 2 inch brads as described. It came with one strip (not nearly the 1000 advertised) of 1 1/4 brads.

First Bostitch nailer for me
I had to replace baseboards after flood and add shoe molding after floating floor installed. The molding is 55-60 years old so no modern replacement so was patched with tablesaw made and looked good. Needed to use 2 in. brads with shoe to reach the baseplate. The nailer worked very nicely on the single-shot setting for the oak material, countersinking the head perfectly with 100 psi pressure in Porter Cable compressor. It was actually very pleasant to use with no misfires or jams. Got it for the oil-free feature. Very light and easily positioned at odd angles Recommend highly.

For casual home users the oil-free is great. Two of my friends terminated their nailers by forgetting oil for the older nailers.By the way the trigger lock and single/mutiple shot locks are easy and effective in use, again for us amateurs.

Bostitch BT1855K-R Brad Nailer
Bought the nailer for some projects planned at home. Haven't used it much, only to see how it works. So far, it appears to be fully capable of doing the job. Bought the refurbished unit. It had obvious usage marks, but none that appears to compromise the tool.
